Good Morning, Everyone!                🌊 WATER YOU KNOW…? 🌊

🎶 STRAITEN up and fly right, STRAITEN up and stay right…STRAITEN up and fly right, cool down Papa, don’t you blow your top…Ain’t no use in divin’. What’s the use of jivin’?…STRAITEN up and fly right, cool down Papa don’t you blow your top….🎶 “Straighten Up And Fly Right” – Nat King Cole 1943

🌊 Today we see more tourists, these are visiting Chile,
And the TARGET of their interest lacks the THRILL that it might be…
The reason, one perhaps UNJUST….a word just made them FREEZE,
As they stood upon the Shore and listened to Señor Cortese.
The itinerary told them….”We’ll ASSIGN a guide to you…
And he’ll take you to the Strait to see, and guide you all way through,
There won’t be time to camp out, no CABANA up for rest,
But our guides are all efficient, and you’re getting Chile’s best…”
Only it turned out that this guide must have missed a day or two,
Because it’s become obvious his data don’t ring true…
And our couple here just knows it…See our girl telling her mate?
“We need a guide who’s able at least to GET HIS FACTS “STRAIT”! 🌊 

All of our words today are Sweet Repeats. Except for TARGET, which we just had this past March 13th, the rest are older, from 2016 and 2017. I found them easily recognizable, but friends are saying that ASSIGN and THRILL caused them to falter a bit. Usually the UN words tend to catch some of us, but with JUTS practically giving us JUST, I don’t think it’ll slow anyone down today. Let us know what you think…
On to the cartoon…Today’s answer came to me as soon as I read the guides’ dialogue, and caught the error with the MAGELLAN CHANNEL. Knowing it’s called a STRAIT, and seeing the “…”, the solution just presented itself. The CHANNEL hint was a big one. I always feel that the dialogue and the question hint very strongly at the answer…and most times the answer is a familiar phrase of sorts. Plus, the way Jeff portrays the characters is a big help too. There’s a ton of data on-line about the MAGELLAN STRAIT, which IS a CHANNEL in reality, discussing it’s narrowness as far as CARGO  travel goes, etc…But to be honest, it’s early Sunday morning…does anyone really want a Geography lesson? I didn’t think so! So…Let’s SAIL on to the good stuff…We see three tourists standing on land, with the guide, Señor Cortese identifying the STRAIT by the wrong NAME. He doesn’t have his information STRAIGHT. The woman shown at front, immediately realizes his error, and points it out to the man she’s with. And with the question asking about the “Body of water NAMED after MAGELLAN“…well, the guide needs to GET HIS FACTS “STRAIT”. Smooth Sailing, we’ve got it STRAIGHT! Good one, David!

Ok, eye candy. The STRAIT’S water is shown in Blue and Black tones. In the background, we see small mountain areas, colored Black and White. Two White CLOUDS are shown overhead. And there’s a Grayish Bale of CARGO shown drifting by. Everyone’s nicely dressed. The male tourist, holding a Smart Phone, is in Blue, his companion in shades of Green, and the third tourist, another woman, wearing a Visor, is dressed in Blue tones also. She’s taking a picture of the STRAIT, with her phone, and Jeff’s managed to capture the image perfectly. The guide is nattily dressed in Khaki, head to toe. And I  especially like his dark-brimmed Gaucho type hat, complete with its’ joined STAMPEDE STRING. But I’m not going to WAIST any more time…I’m going with the FANNY PACK on the visored woman. FANNY PACKS just make me smile! So, There you have it Folks, Done! Have a great day, Everyone…And remember, it’s always important to get a persons’ name STRAIT. If you don’t, you may get a CHILE response!  🌊🙋🏻

  1. I was eager to ASSIGN the CABANA with the TARGET symbol to the UNJUST beach bum and it gave me a THRILL when a cold front swept in and he experienced a near FREEZE.
    No difficulty with the scrambled words or the solution today—for a Sunday, I was pleasantly surprised at how quickly I was through.
    Great song choice Angela—love that man’s voice. And miss him
    You’ve said just about all there is to stay about the cartoon, the background on the Strait of Magellan and pointed out another fanny pack. So I guess I’ll pack it in and wish everyone a wonderful Sunday.
    For some reason when I wanted to say something about Serena’s loss at the open, all I could think of this AM was “Don’t Cry For Me Argentina” which has no relevance to her, her amazing opponent or the cartoon—but sometimes a little non-relevance is soothing.

    • Earl….I’m just sick over it all. Devastated. Mixed emotions, and I did shed a tear. I don’t know what to say. But I’m taking nothing away from Naomi, by no means…she played brilliantly. It’s just all so tainted, for both women. How sad, right? And it’s all a bit overwhelming right now…
      Ahem…Good Morning! Totally agree, such a breeze for a 6-word puzzle. Thanks for the Shout Outs, and I soooo love Mr. Cole too. A voice so smooth that he made your skin crawl…Well mine anyway! 😉 I’m glad you enjoyed the song. I did take some artistic liberty with it, but it came to me instantly, and it gave me the laugh I needed this rainy, dreary morning..I couldn’t even get the puns revved up! 😉…Hope your weather’s better than mine! Have a good one, Earl. 🌊🙋🏻


    • Earl…I’m so sorry. Your mention of Serena threw me all off…Brilliant use of these words today. They weren’t all that conducive to a normal bit of prose! You have an amazing imagination! 😘🙋🏻


    • Great sentence, Earl, not least because it reminded me of Joni Mitchell’s “Carey” – 🎵”The wind is in from Africa, last night I couldn’t sleep”🎵


  2. Good morning. I’ll read everybody later as I’m heading out again. Angela,I left a message for you on yesterday’s blog. I was able to get the words pretty quick except for 1+6 which took some time to get. The cartoon answer I threw in the towel because I have to get out again. As for now,take care.

    • Good Morning, Paul. Yes, I have it..But I got in late, and had some stuff to deal with…And then I did today’s puzzle as soon as it showed up on-line at 3 AM, and went to sleep for a while. I figured I’d answer you with both when you checked in today…Threw in the towel? Hmm..Ok..We’ll talk later! 😉 Enjoy whatever you’re up to! 🌊🙋🏻


    • Hi Mike… I’m on an iPad, so I only know one way…I open the link, go up to my browser window, and copy. Then I paste it here in the post box…Hope it helps….🙋🏻


      • Okay, we’ll see if this works. In the Ronnie Wood show I mentioned yesterday, Paul said that Eddie Cochran’s “20 Flight Rock” was what got him into the Beatles. At the church fête where Paul and John met for the first time, Paul was with John and the Quarrymen between sets, and he picked up a right-handed guitar and started playing and singing that song. John seemed to be impressed by this kid who knew all the lyrics to 20 Flight Rock. In this video, Paul goes into more detail. (Ignore the Spanish subtitles.)

      • Mike…It worked fine…I’d never heard this before. I’m telling you, just the sound of that cockney accent, and I’m done! 😉 Thank you so much..I’m going to keep it. I have a brother who plays guitar, I think he’d love this…I’m going to send you a link that Steve turned me on to, that will bring up the links without the pictures showing like this one did whenever copying and pasting, especially from YouTube..It’ll tell you exactly what to do..Try it and let me know if it works…Thanks again..This is golden! I’ll send it in a sec….🙋🏻


      • Mike…You just copy and paste any YouTube link into the top box, and it’ll give you a shortened one. You then copy and paste that new one into an email or a post…Let me know…In fact try it with this one you just sent, and let’s see if it works…(I’ve bookmarked the page for myself) so I don’t have to bother keying it anymore to access it). 🙋🏻



      • LOVE the video. I’d see it too, and Steve made 2-3 attempts to school me on it before I got it through my thick head..I have no idea what I was doing originally, but I couldn’t swing it. Then I did just this..bookmarked it, and voila…I just pasted it in and it worked…We have him to thank…Ok, I’m going to try it…🙋🏻


      • Mike, I also heard one of them say that John was impressed with Paul because he knew how to tune up his own guitar, and the Quarrymen had been taking theirs to a guy in Liverpool who charged them to do it. Early days, indeed. 🙋🏻‍♂️

  3. Hi all – Only ASSIGN took a second look. Used the “TH” trick to see (Can’t buy a) THRILL, UN to get UNJUST, and how about getting *two* triple letter words today! 🎵”Two triple cheese, side order of fries”🎵Commander Cody
    The answer made me laugh out loud because I saw what he was getting at right away – these passengers need to change the CHANNEL. (Number 5 might cover up the smell of the mistake). Magellan could have gotten a STRAIT ARROW right here, but I guess that fate was reserved for later in the Philippines. I never realized until looking up him up this morning that the two dwarf galaxies called the “Magellanic Clouds” were named in honor of his navigational skills.

    Ah, so the days are getting shorter, the leaves are turning, the kids are back in school, but nothing says Fall to me like the Jumble Answers banner changing.
    I’m good with it though. The beach scene was lovely, but not so appropriate anymore, and I’m told change is good! The old logo will live on forever in various screenshots, and David Hoyt’s video where he shows it on his computer screen.
    🎵”Summertime done come and gone, my-oh-my!”🎵Grateful Dead, US Blues
    🎵”They say that all good things must end some day
    Autumn leaves must fall”🎵Chad and Jeremy, Summer Song
    🎵”All things must pass”🎵George Harrison

    And in honor of your song Angela, remember those “lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer”! Great stuff.

    Have a great Sunday, everyone!

    Hey, “Summer Song” – another for the list of songs whose title doesn’t appear in the lyrics, along with Paul mentioning “The Christmas Song” by Mel Torme.

    • Steve:
      Another song whose title doesn’t appear in the lyrics is the Who’s “Baba O’Riley”, known today for being the CSI theme song. A lot of people mistakenly think the song’s title is “Teenage Wasteland”.
      Not totally meeting your criteria, but worth mentioning is Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believin'”, whose title doesn’t appear until the end of the song.

      • Good stuff Mike! I mentioned it because Angela and I spent *way* too much time thinking these up a little while ago. Bob Dylan and Jefferson Airplane have *tons* of them! 😂

        About the Beatles meeting, I wrote this:
        Hi Angela and Mike. Great stuff. I haven’t seen Mike’s link yet, but will get to it today for sure. Two things.
        Here’e a link to a YouTube clip from the movie “Nowhere Boy” (that I haven’t seen yet) that depicts The Quarrymen’s performance and John meeting Paul. Really fun.


        Also, when you create a Tinyurl link, you can put whatever you want for the link (if you want something descriptive instead of random) in the box called “Custom alias optional”. If it’s unique, it will give it to you (as I did in the link above.)
        “So long, and I hope I passed the audition”! 😂🙋🏻‍♂️

  4. Steve:
    I’ve seen “Nowhere Boy” and recommend it for Beatles fans. I was thinking that the movie doesn’t depict Paul singing “20 Flight Rock”, but the clip you sent shows him singing one verse only. I guess the movie didn’t have time for the whole song.

    As far as Dylan songs, I can offhand think of “Just Like Tom Thumb’s Blues”. Can’t think of any Airplane songs right now.😏

    • “Positively 4th Street”, “My Back Pages”, “Bob Dylans 115th Dream” and on and on.
      Airplane – “A Small Package of Value Will Come To You Shortly”, “House at Pooneil Corner”, “Eskimo Blue Day”, “She Has Funny Cars”, “3/5 of a Mile in 10 Seconds”.

      Should have kept my list, it was fun! 😂🙋🏻‍♂️
